Tso Moriri (Ladakh) to Kibber (Spiti) across Parang La Trek Overview

The Parang La trek starts form Karzok on the northern shores of Tso Moriri from where a 8-9 day trek leads to Kibber village, once reputed to be the highest permanently inhabited village in the world.
After a night’s camping at the Tso Moriri lake, we walk across the plateau to the Chumik Sharte spring. The Parang la trek involves river crossings, crossing glaciers and crevasses and trekking to the top of the Parang la pass (5490m). The pass has prayer flags and the other side is dry and very steep descent. The climb to the Parang la pass is not without its challenges with the final four kilometres taking 2 hours. Parilungi is the last Ladakhi peak visible from Spiti and from there we descend to the source of the Pare Chu river. The scenery dramatically changes after crossing the Parang la, from steep gorges to broad plains. the last campsite is near a huge rock with a waterfall. But in end of September and October water dries up, therefore you have to carry water from the Parang La base.
Before the road connectivity between Spiti and Ladakh, Parang la pass was one of the most important trekking routes which connected Spiti to Ladakh. Throughout history the Parang la trek was also an important trekking route between the people of Spiti, Changthang and Tibet.
